 Well I disagree on the focus on limited editions as I clarified my point while also never offering it as some sort of silver bullet, so I don't see how that was placing "far too much value on limited editions."  Either way I think it's entirely fair that we disagree on what effect what I proposed might have. I see it both ways.  Sure you're expressing your opinion, but I think in some cases what you're posting while quoting me comes off as attributing to me something that...
 I'm having trouble with your reply because again you seem to be attributing something to what I posted that just isn't there, and that's after I have already clarified some points.  I'm simply saying that a strategy, which would be part of an overall strategy, that makes sense would be to in part limit production.  I'm not saying watchmakers should make more limited editions or limit every edition, but I'd say that generally it's pretty clear that supply is greater than...
https://www.billykirk.com/collections/sample-sale   Billykirk sample sale.  Some nice bags are still left.  Nice prices too.
 I noticed that as well.  We'll see if that is indeed the case, but every season I've been shopping them they've done the extra 40% code for the last few days.
 It actually means both.  I was referring to both limiting the production of limited editions as well as in some cases standard production pieces. I wasn't referring to specific brands, but I definitely wasn't referring to PP, AP or VC.  That said I think other brands like JLC for instance would benefit from such a move.  While I don't see the pieces being more exclusive as entirely a way to broaden appeal or increase sales, though I think that's a definite possibility...
 Great commentary.  I would however rephrase my point about limited editions.  Instead of "more limited editions" I should have said "limit more editions."  I wouldn't apply that to all brands and certainly not all models, but I think from their end there is both opportunity and motive to do so and in doing it could keep them from having to lower prices as much as they may need to.  At the end of the day my personal motivation though is to get a great deal on a watch I...
Has anyone in the US been able to checkout on End from the UK site?  I was able to in the past, but it no longer seems to work.  It gives two options that are A) Ship to the US and switches you back to the US site and B) ship to the UK, but in the latter case it tells you to amend the shipping address.  I ask because there is a notable difference in prices between the two sites.
 I'm just curious to see how brands react.  One thing that comes to mind is more exclusivity by way of more limited editions coupled with smaller production numbers of limited editions.  Still as someone who can't just break the bank on every watch I want I think it'd be interested to see what they can deliver at say the $3000 range.  Love them or hate them, Nomos has multiple models at that range whether it's either full retail or grey pricing.  Anyway, they can start by...
Re: Hodinkee   I don't have a problem with the piece on the Bamford as much as I would never touch that watch (for reasons of taste).  As noted, they seem to have done it for years and perhaps more important than that they don't do it for every watch out there.  I don't mind the Daytona discussion either all things considered, but it really should have been a video.  I think that the dialogue would have come off differently than seeing it in print.     For me the site...
 I really like the look of the 1907 in rose gold.  I'd have to see it on the wrist for size though.  37mm would probably be a better size, but a great looking watch either way.
